Continuous Support Tape #6 is used in roller furling rigs along the leading edge of the sail instead of jib snaps. This tape features two hard braided cords sewn into a strip of 6 oz Dacron® tape. The first cord is a 3/16” diameter line with a 1/8” backup cord that is designed to keep the sail from jamming. This tape is for use with roller furling systems and grooved headstays. #6 is the most popular size of Continuous Support Tape used.
Sew Continuous Support Tape in place (no stretching necessary) and slide it into a Headfoil, Streamstay, Reefer, Twin Stay, Sea Furl, Gemini, Tuff Luff or similar grooved extrusion fitting over the headstay.

Couldn’t find it anywhere else
Just needed a little bit for a small project. Quality is excellent - just what I wanted.
Just what I needed to freshen up my sail. The old tape was cracking and breaking in pieces. This new luff tape is easy and ready to just sew it on!
Thanks for nothing.
I wanted a one inch piece for a sample. Had to buy a foot so I can throw more away and waste money and material. #6 is the wrong size. I would like to try #7 but your site says I have to purchase 10 foot. Just want a sample to see if it fits. Eventually I will need 50 foot of whatever works but I am not wasting money and time with you guys. Looking somewhere else.
